Historian to Share Guide to Lincoln's Legal Journey.

  • Carnegie Room North, Springfield's Lincoln Public Library

For 25 years Abraham Lincoln practiced law on the Eighth Judicial Circuit each spring and fall, a journey covering more than four hundred miles. Historian Guy Fraker of Bloomington will take a nostalgic look back at Lincoln's route where he met with clients, friends and associates, many of whom became part of the network that ultimately elevated him to the Presidency. Even more, he will be telling the story behind his new book, Looking for Lincoln in Illinois: A Guide to Lincoln's Eighth Judicial Circuit. Plan to join us for this program.
